We loved the beer list here but the Lady was very rude to us & made us feel unwelcome which is a shame as we were tourists from overseas who were super excited to visit Toronado. We had one drink and left. Go to the...More

Thanks for being awesome Toronado. First time being there for this east coaster and it was tremendous dive bar vibe. Multiple Russian River beers on tap - Pliny pints for $5. Would've waited in line for 2 hours on the east coast and paid $12...More

A real bar with a wide variety of craft beer. Not pretentious. Come here if you really like beer. A mix of locals and visitors. Adults only. Mix of ages, friendly.

Great selection of craft beers from all over. Got to try Pliny the Elder. As for the reputation of rude bartenders, I didn't experience it. As long as you know your order and don't keep them waiting and be respectful, you should have no problem....More

Surprising collection of craft beer at this dive bar. Pliny on tap along with some excellent sours and even NEIPAs. Bartender is rude but hell, at this price, I'll ignore that any day

This place has an awesome selection of craft beer! It's a bit of a dive, but all the more charming for it! The bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable about beer, and there's a great little restaurant next door where you can get some takeaway to...More

Yes, it's probably considered a dive bar. But who cares? You're not going here to watch a game, although there is a TV. You're coming here for a fantastic craft beer selection that very few places in U.S. can rival. But, remember to bring your...More

Toronado is a great, low key bar. This is not a place for the pretentious crowd. Go, be yourself, and have a beer. It'll be fun...

Best craft beer bar I visited in San Francisco for many reasons. It has great prices, really nice staff and atmosphere of it's own. You really should visit this place to experience it.

Marvelous ambience. Incredible selection of craft beers. Step out to the sausage shop next door for a “carry in” meal.

The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and
Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of
the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage
clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops.
While the Summer of Love ended decades ago,
Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of
hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through
its streets can still feel like stepping back in time.
